HARTFORD - A Stamford woman disfigured in a chimpanzee attack has been denied permission to sue the state.

Charla Nash's family sought permission to sue Connecticut for $150 million but was denied today by the state claims commissioner.

Nash was blinded, lost both hands and underwent a face transplant after being mauled in Stamford in 2009.

Nash reached a $4 million settlement last year with the estate of chimp owner Sandra Herold, who died in 2010.
